County chooses new clerk Cleared in ethics probe, Crane to fill Doty’s term By deborah grigsby
Elementary School. The garden at Hay, like other community gardens, assign plots to residents on a firstcome, first-served basis.
The Arapahoe County commissioners have appointed Matt Crane as the county’s new clerk and recorder, replacing Nancy Doty, who has held the position while simultaneously serving as county commissioner. In 4 to 1 vote, Crane emerged as the candidate of choice during the March 19 public hearing, with supporters citing his experience and technical skills. Board members cast their votes aloud, each justifying their selection. “I know, personally, how difficult this job is,” said Doty. “Experience is key, and being able to Crane take over on day one is critical, therefore I cast my ballot for Matt Crane.” Commissioners Rod Bockenfeld, Nancy Jackson and Bill Holen echoed Doty’s remarks, also casting their vote for Crane, who held the position of Arapahoe County deputy of elections under Doty. Holen, who represents District 5, read a statement scolding those responsible for a mysterious letter sent to the board earlier this year calling Crane’s integrity into question, calling the attempt vicious and an “attempt to usurp the democratic process.” District 2 Commissioner Nancy Sharpe, the only holdout, cast her vote for Susan Beckman, a former county commissioner. Sharpe said she based her decision to support Beckman on the office’s need for solid executive leadership. “The technology is already there,” she said. “The person that fills this position should be a strong manager, a respected leader and have the integrity and honesty to ensure fair elections.” After votes were tallied, realizing she was the only holdout, Sharpe asked to go on record in support of Crane. Crane was among three final candidates to fill the vacancy created by Doty

Volunteers get down and dirty First work day of spring prepares Hay plots for planting By Tom Munds
email@example.com About a dozen volunteers turned out March 17 to do make-the-muscles-ache work as they cleaned up and began preparing the community garden plots at Hay World School for spring plantings. Two years ago, volunteers, with the help of city workers, replaced the tennis court west of Hay school with a community garden. “Last year’s community garden was very successful, and this is our first work day this year as we begin the preparation work necessary to get all the plots ready so crops can be planted,” said Lara Fahnestock, who headed the volunteers. “We have a total of 45 plots in this garden. The schoolchildren plant and tend about a third of the plots, plus we also have several raised plots set aside for seniors or individuals with disabilities. The rest are for members of the Englewood community” Englewood launched its community garden project in 2010 through grants from Arapahoe County Open Space funds and through a partnership with Denver Urban Gardens. The first community garden is lo-

Immigration law could be sidelined by legislation Move gets support from Democrats, Republicans By Vic Vela
firstname.lastname@example.org A Thornton Democrat is seeking to repeal a state law that requires police to report those they suspect of being in the country illegally to immigration authorities. And it’s an effort that has support from
Republicans, as well as from members of the law enforcement community. Rep. Joe Salazar said his House Bill 1258 would prevent local officers “from engaging in federal immigration enforcement,” as well as would help re-establish trust between police and immigrants. “It brings back dignity between law enforcement and the communities,” Salazar said before the House State, Military and Veterans Affairs Committee on March 18. Salazar’s bill would repeal a law that was put in place in 2006, which

critics say creates paperwork headaches and is redundant and divisive. They point to a federal program that local law enforcement already adheres to called SeReport cure Communities, which requires that police use fingerprints from arrestees to identify illegal immigrants with criminal backgrounds. Critics say the Colorado law puts law enforcement in the awkward position of having to determine whether someone is here illegally on initial contact. Members of law enforcement say jails already are full, and keeping someone locked up for a traffic violation, just because they’re suspected of being the country illegally, is not the best of use of their resources. “My jails are overfull,” said Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle. “I don’t have extra
resources to hold people for civil violations in my jail.” Norma Morones testified that she was pulled over for a minor traffic offense in 2011, and ended up being taken to jail and held there until immigration authorities could sort out her residency status. Morones said the incident resulted in “stress and fear and depression,” and left her hesitant to reach out to law enforcement again, even in cases where she wanted to report serious crimes. “Because of this incident, I lost trust in the police,” Morones said, through a translator. The bill passed the committee on a 9-2 vote, with two Republicans — Reps. Tim Dore of Elizabeth and Ray Scott of Grand Junction — casting a yes vote. It’s possible that even more GOP lawmakers could end up voting for the bill, as it goes through the legislative process. “I came into this a very strong no,” said Rep. Jared Wright, R-Fruita. “I’m now a very soft no.”

Real ‘R-word’ should be ‘respect’ Brenden VanBruwaene, 16, looks intently, seriously, at the camera as he starts the public service announcement. His words are simple and direct: “When I hear people saying retarded, it makes me feel upset and … sad a lot. That’s what I feel.” Brenden would know. He is a sophomore, a friend to all, who walks through school halls listening to music with his headphones and iPod and flashing happy smiles. He has big dreams — to be a famous actor or singer someday. He also has Down syndrome, a fact of life Brenden will passionately tell you has shown him how important it is to be kind and respectful to everyone. He doesn’t hear the word “retard” much, but he was called it once last year. A friend stood up for him. Still, he hurt. “This is,” he says, “not right.” Brenden knows — which is why he and his school have joined a nationwide campaign to eradicate what they call the R-word as it is used today. Words are powerful. When strung together in careful and thoughtful precision, like a meticulously embroidered tapestry, they are beautiful, magical. They touch, inspire, break down barriers and connect us. But tossed about ignorantly, without attention or respect for meaning, and words wound. They tear us down and apart. “With any word, it’s not what you say,” Karen Riley says, “it’s what you mean when you say it.” Riley is an associate professor and chair of the educational research and policy department at the University of Denver’s Morgridge College of Education. She also has spent many years working with children who have neurodevelopmental
disorders, such as Down syndrome. In its clinical form, she notes, the word retardation is benign. It connotes anything that doesn’t move at the rate it should be moving — it’s slower or retarded. But that’s not how the word, in any of its derivative forms, is generally used today. “We know what it means,” one high school sophomore said, “but we just have a different definition for it.” The definition: An expression of exasperation. Stupid. Riley tells her students this true story: A mother pulling into a school accidentally bumped into the car parked in front. The driver of the parked car said to the mother, “What are you, a retard?” The mother then proceeded to help her child, with Down syndrome, from her car. The man apologized profusely. “Would it have been OK if she didn’t have a child with Down syndrome?” Riley asks. “As long as nobody is there to hear it, is it OK to use that word? If you know it’s hurtful, then why do we say it at all?” Retard, of course, isn’t the only word in this category. There’s the N-word, the derogatory term for African-Americans, and gay, which when used to mean dumb or ridiculous also implies homosexuals
Pet legislation stirs division Feel-good animal bill hits snag By Vic Vela
email@example.com It’s hard enough getting Democrats and Republicans to come together on much of anything without throwing cats and dogs into the mix. Our four-legged friends are getting caught in the crossfire over a bill that seeks to designate cats and dogs that have been adopted from Colorado animal shelters and rescues as the state pets. Sen. Andy Kerr, D-Lakewood, who is the sponsor of Senate Bill 201, said he wanted to recognize the “the excellent work that our rescue groups and our shelter groups do in finding homes for dogs and cats that truly need them.” Jennifer Strickland, director of community relations and development at Golden’s Foothills Animal Shelter, said the bill “makes a lot of sense.” “I think any opportunity to be able to
bring awareness to how wonderful shelter pets can be is a great thing,” she said. But don’t expect certain animal groups to roll over and play dead as the bill makes its way through the Legislature. “We don’t understand why it’s a bill,” said Dan Anglin of Anglin Public Affairs. “It doesn’t make any sense.” Anglin represents the Colorado Federation of Dog Clubs, which puts on dog shows in the state, as well as the Colorado Pet Association, which represents animal breeders, retailers and groomers. He claims the bill would “create a perception” that it’s better to adopt animals from shelters, as opposed to seeking other avenues. “This bill puts into state statute that the state pet is how you acquire it,” Anglin said. Rep. Kathleen Conti, R-Littleton, originally was a House co-sponsor of the bill, but she said she plans on removing her name from the legislation. Conti, a former pet groomer, said she “is very supportive of our local shelters,” but is uncomfortable in recognizing certain dog adoption groups over others.
are lesser than others. Kim Gorgens, an assistant professor of psychology at DU and past chair of the American Psychological Association’s Committee on Disability Issues, would argue that even words like crazy and cripple fall into this classification. “These words become episodes that are so denigrating and so harmful to groups of people,” she says. “Recognizing how you play a part in that problem is really powerful.” But the R-word — with its connection to people with intellectual and developmental disabilities — faces a unique battle. “These are our most vulnerable members of society,” Riley says. “It’s difficult for them to advocate for themselves. … As a society, isn’t it our responsibility to make sure you’re not disrespected? If you can’t defend yourself, isn’t it our responsibility to do so?” Soeren Palumbo, whose sister has an intellectual disability, thought so. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, he and Tim Shriver, a Yale University graduate, started the Spread the Word to End the Word campaign in 2009. Advocacy also has come from the federal government with Rosa’s Law, passed in 2010, which replaces “mental retardation” with “intellectual disability” in all federal legislation. Today, the Spread the Word campaign is a youth-driven effort by Special Olympics and Best Buddies, organizations that work with individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities and provide resources to schools to promote the campaign. The official annual day of awareness is the first Wednesday in March.
“It’s been a huge platform for a lot of young people in the schools,” says Mandi DeWitt of Special Olympics Colorado. Colorado, she adds, is one of eight states with the highest youth participation in such activities. At Castle View High School in Castle Rock, where Brenden attends school and where he was elected this year as Homecoming Royalty for his class, hundreds of students signed a pledge to stop using the R-word. As part of the campaign, they stopped at tables at the cafeteria’s entrance to scrawl their names on banners. “I’ve been saying that word for a while now,” one young man said. “I’ve not been the kindest. This is sort of a way to make me stop saying that.” “My friend said it the day before,” another student said. “I told her to not say that — `It insulted me.’ That’s not the way I am.” Pam Baker, Brenden’s special education teacher, fought back tears as she watched student after student sign the pledge. “They were part of history,” she said, “paving the way for others not to hear the word retarded and make it extinct.” In the cafeteria, the public service announcement plays. Students sitting at the tables look up at the screen. There’s Brenden. “I say `retarded’ is the wrong word to say,” he says to his audience. “And that’s what I know.” That’s what we should all know.

Chamber bestows annual awards Group’s event lauds involvement, contributions
‘He has always been active in the community and a strong supporter
By Tom Munds
email@example.com About 100 people attended the March 12 Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce Gala, where the chamber presented awards to businesses and individuals in recognition of involvement and contributions to the community in the past, present and future. The dinner and awards ceremonies were held at the Englewood Meridan. There was time to socialize before Mayor Randy Penn made the remarks opening the ceremonies presenting awards to the community organization of the year, chamber member of the year, emerging business of the year, business of the year and lifetime business achievement. The chamber holds the event each year. Chamber members select the nominees in each category and members voted to determine the winners. The presentation of the Chamber Member of the Year Award to A. J. Guanella of John Elway Chevrolet was endorsed by a standing ovation. Guanella attended Englewood High School and played on the 1950 Pirates baseball team that finished second in the state. At the same time, he started his career in the automotive business by taking a job in the parts department of Burt Chevrolet in 1949. He made sure to attend community pro-

He has
always been active in the community and a strong supporter of the chamber and of Englewood.” Guanella said the award came as a complete surprise. “I didn’t do anything they talked about for my personal gratification,” he said after the event. “Everything I did I hoped was contributing to making Englewood a better place for us to live.” He smiled and said he is fortunate to
have four families. He said the No. 1 family is his wife and children, but he also has the family at the dealership, the family at the chamber and the family at his golf club. He said he is fortunate to have all those people who support and care about him. He said it is natural he supported Englewood because of the support of the people of Englewood for the 13 years he sold cars, and the support extended to what he did in management. Guanella said there were tough economic times and the need came to sell the Burt Chevrolet dealership. “There were several potential buyers and some of them weren’t very credible,” he said. “Fortunately, the sale to John Elway Chevrolet proved to be a good thing for the community because the most credible owner made the purchase and brought back the same style of service that was the trademark of Burt Chevrolet for all those years.”

Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce cites achievements By Tom Munds
firstname.lastname@example.org The Greater Englewood Chamber of Commerce held its annual gala March 12 that included presentation of awards to businesses and individuals for their accomplishments and achievements. This year’s awards went to: The Chamber Member of the Year was presented to A.J. Guanella for his contributions to the community that began in 1949. The Community Organization of the Year was presented to the Mosaic Church of Englewood. Jamie Thompson, presenting the award, said contributions to the community include a food bank serving more than a hundred families a week, a Halloween Carnival that drew almost 1,000 people, and food and activities for coaches, players and fans after Pirate football games. The Emerging Business of the Year was presented to the owners of the Copper Pot Restaurant. Co-owner Sarah Worton said the restaurant began in the Old Hampden location before opening a second location on South
Broadway. She said the aim is to please customers, so the restaurant menu reflects her Southern cooking style and the Los Angeles cooking style of her partner. The Lifetime Business Achievement Award was presented to Bill Smith Plumbing. Bill Smith began the business in his garage in 1957 and moved to the present Oxford and Broadway location in 1960. Roy Yehley has owned the business since 1987. He said there are 17 employees and 11 trucks in the field and all continue to promote Bill Smith’s idea of doing quality work and being fair to the customers. The Business of the Year Award was presented to Colore Pizzeria Moderna Restaurant. Presenter Jamie Thompson said that while many sit-down restaurants were closing, the Colore owners opened their restaurant at 2700 S. Broadway. Thompson said the restaurant has been very successful because it is a great dining destination that comes up with innovative ways to serve customers. The Special Appreciation Award was presented to the Community Banks of Colorado for all the support of the chamber and the contributions to the community. Hank Wuenschiel, bank president, accepted the award and said the company was pleased to be in Englewood and appreciates the opportunity to support the chamber and the community.

Fish fry popular at All Souls Church By Tom Munds
The normal Friday-night quiet at All Souls Catholic Church disappears during Lent as Knights of Columbus volunteers put on a fish fry attended by about 160 families a week.

City not imposing water restrictions Englewood has sufficient supply despite drought By Tom Munds
email@example.com We care for patients in their own homes, in our own inpatient facility, in nursing homes and in assisted living residences.
During transition, we’re with our patients, supporting loved ones or being with patients who have no one else. Our patients are not alone. Not in life ... nor death.

Englewood residents won’t face mandatory lawn watering restrictions this summer but are urged to follow conservation measures. “We are concerned about the drought, but right now our reservoirs are full so we will not impose lawn watering restrictions at this time. But, if the drought worsens, we could adopt mandatory restrictions later in the summer,” said Stu Fonda, Englewood utilities director. “Overall, we believe our supplies are sufficient to meet summer demands. We also urge customers to continue to conserve water as they have in recent years.” The city’s plentiful raw-water supply is due in large part to the efforts of Englewood Mayor Charles Allen and water attorney Mark Shivers in the late 1940s and early 1950s, when the city began planning its water system. That was when city officials purchased senior water rights that are the foundation of Englewood’s supply of raw water. Over the years, Englewood has continued to secure valuable water rights. In 1987, the water utility spent about $200,000 on water-attorney fees in successful court actions to secure about 1,400 acre-feet of water. Fonda said the lawyer fees in this case were a good investment when the going price for water rights then was about $10,000 an acre-foot. An acre-foot of water is 329,500 gallons, which is generally considered the amount of water a family of four uses in a year.
Englewood has announced there will be no mandatory lawn watering restrictions because the city’s reservoirs, like the holding pond at Englewood’s water treatment plant, are full. Photo by Tom Munds Englewood purchased land and built McClellan Reservoir in 1965. It is a major water-storage location for the city. In addition, Englewood has agreements for Denver to store water and release it as requested. The sufficient raw water supply also makes it possible for Englewood to meet the threshold of the water sales contract with Centennial Water District, which supplies water to Highlands Ranch. Fonda said the threshold is delivery of about 1,800 acre-feet of water to Centennial Water District, which brings about $1.8 million in revenue to the city. He said it would hurt the city financially if Englewood was not able to meet the water sales contract. Englewood treats raw water for its customers at the Allen Filter Plant, 1500 W. Layton Ave. John Bock, manager of administration for Englewood utilities, said the
peak demand for treated water in 2012 was on June 24, when residents used 11.9 million gallons. He said about a third of the water is used in the home and about twothirds is used to water lawns and gardens. “We urge people to plant grass and shrubs that need less water and follow the every-third-day watering calendar in the summer,” Bock said. “We also continue the effort to install water meters in all our 10,400 customer locations.” The effort to have customers switch from flat rate to meters began in 1985. “We find water use declines about 30 percent when a customer is on a meter,” Fonda said. “We now have about 80 percent of our customers on water meters.” The city installs a meter at a customer’s request or when a home is sold, installing about 300 meters a year.
Developer sought for downtown site Proposals requested for area along Broadway, parkway By Tom Munds
firstname.lastname@example.org Englewood is seeking a development proposal for the land at the southwest corner of Broadway and Englewood Parkway. The almost 81,000 square feet is jointly owned by the city of Englewood and the Englewood Urban Renewal Authority. The L-shaped parcel includes vacant land with about 80 feet of frontage on Broadway and about 260 feet of Englewood Parkway frontage. The majority of the site is behind the businesses on the west side of the 3400 block of South Broadway. The block-long parcel from the alley west to Acoma Street is now used to provide free parking for downtown customers. The site is zoned MU-B-1 business district, which permits mixed-use development including residential and retail projects. The document sent to prospective developers reported there are about 14,000 daytime employees within a mile of the site, and more than 75,000
The city and urban renewal authority are seeking development proposals for this corner lot along with the Acoma parking lot. The land can be bought or leased. Photo by Tom Munds employees within a three-mile radius of the location. The request for proposal also stated the land was available for lease or sale. “This land has been vacant for a long time,” said Alan White, community development director. “The owners asked the staff to release the request for development proposals.” There have been two previous proposals for development of the site in
the past few years. There was a proposal in 2006 to create a mixed-use retail and residential development. The companies had completed their designs, but a market decline derailed the plan to finance the project. A year or so later there was a proposal to build a cultural arts center on the site, but again financing wasn’t available, so the project never moved forward.
Marijuana recommendations are quite a handful Task force creates much work for lawmakers By Vic Vela
email@example.com It’s 166 pages long and it contains 58 regulation recommendations — some will be more complex and controversial to deal with than others. So it’s no wonder that state lawmakers are going to have to work overtime to get through a report from the Amendment 64 Task Force in time to meet a deadline for putting in place rules dealing with November’s voterapproved marijuana legalization in Colorado.
A newly created legislative committee began its work on implementing the task force regulations on March 15. The Joint Select Committee, which is made up of Democrats and Republicans from both houses of the General Assembly, heard testimony on how to go about crafting pot rules that must be ready for enforcement on July 1. If lawmakers can’t create legislation this session that deals with a myriad of issues — such as protections for children, figuring out how to deal with tourists, and how the marijuana industry is taxed — then the state’s Department of Revenue will put rules in place without input from lawmakers. “We’d prefer not to implement rules without the guidance of the General
Assembly,” said Department of Revenue head Barbara Brohl, who also is co-chair of the task force that was put in place by Gov. John Hickenlooper. Because of that, the committee’s House chairman, Rep. Dan Pabon, D-Denver, said members should expect to meet several times through the remainder of the session in order to complete their work. As if their job isn’t difficult enough, committee members also must take into consideration the federal government’s role in all of this. The state still doesn’t know whether the U.S. Department of Justice will intervene in Colorado’s new marijuana industry, by way of federal drug enforcement or even a lawsuit.

Hearing delayed on business district Petition seeks end of taxing entity
‘I think the continuance is fair but I still think the petitioners should be heard.’
By Tom Munds
Joe Jefferson, council member
Proponents of dissolving the Englewood Business Improvement District objected loudly to the city council decision to continue the public hearing until June 17. The March 18 public hearing was part of a process triggered by the filing of a petition, signed by a number of district property owners, asking for the BID to be dissolved. When a council motion was made to grant the continuance requested by BID officials, thus ending the public hearing until June, Dominique Cook voiced her objection from her seat in the audience. Cook, who has been spokesperson for the petitioners, not only objected to the council continuing the public hearing, she objected to the council not allowing those who favored dissolution to speak at the hearing. “You can’t do this,” she said. “Please let me speak at this hearing. It isn’t fair. It is our right to be heard. This is to be a public hearing and the public should be allowed to speak.” City Attorney Dan Brotzman disagreed. He said in any public hearing, the council can approve a continuance at any point.
As the council discussed the issue and prepared to vote, Cook and the others who supported dissolution of the district left, but told the council that they were not done with this issue. At least two members of the city council, Joe Jefferson and Rick Gillit, agreed with Cook that she should have been allowed to speak at the public hearing. The council debated the issue and voted 5-2 to grant the continuance, with Jefferson and Gillit voting against it. The district is a self-taxing, self-governed program set up to finance projects above and beyond those provided by governmental agencies. The Englewood Business Improvement District was formed by election in 2006 and includes all commercial properties on both sides of Broadway from Yale Avenue to U.S. Highway 285. Merchants along the stretch of Broadway launched the successful grassroots effort to create the business district, followed the process and, in the required November
2006 election, property owners voted almost 2 to 1 to create the district. But recently it was apparent some of the district’s property owners no longer supported it. Cook, whose father John Cook owns a substantial amount of property along Broadway, announced the effort to dissolve the district and presented the petitions signed by property owners at the Feb. 4 Englewood City Council meeting. She stated the reason for the dissolution effort was that the improvement district lacks organization and transparency. Frank Gryglewicz, city finance and administration director, told the council at the start of the public hearing that he assumed all signatures on the petition were valid and the signatures represented 58.2 percent of district property owners and 57.8 percent of the assessed valuation of property in the district. The process then allowed the challengers to the petition to speak at the public hearing. Larry Berkowitz, attorney for the
BID, said the district has sufficient reason to offer challenges to some signatures on the petition, including some individuals who would remove their names from the document. However, there hasn’t been time to speak to all district property owners, so Brian Hart, BID treasurer, read a letter from district president Bob Laughlin detailing projects accomplished and projects planned as well as a request to continue the public hearing until mid-June. At that point, a motion was made to continue the public hearing until the June 17 city council meeting. Gillit said he didn’t feel granting a continuance at this point was the thing to do. “We should hear from all those who signed up to speak at this public hearing,” he said. “Not giving everyone the opportunity to speak on this issue isn’t appropriate.” The city attorney told the council that if action was taken to continue the public hearing at this point, the council doesn’t need to hear from the petitioners. Council Member Jill Wilson said she felt the BID should be given sufficient time to talk to all district property owners. She said there is no harm in granting the extra time to have those discussions. But Jefferson said he felt the petitioners should be heard as part of the public hearing. “I think the continuance is fair but I still think the petitioners should be heard,” he said.

Dog waste that is not collected gets carried away during rainstorms to nearby waterways and can be a significant source of pollution. Unlike one might think, dog waste is not a fertilizer.

opinions / yours and ours
a land with problems, a nation with laws The comments of Weld County Sheriff John Cooke, reported in the Greeley Tribune, are making waves and being picked up in national news. His words put him squarely in an informal group of so-called rogue sheriffs. According to news reports, Cooke said he is not interested in enforcing two particular bills – one expands background checks on firearms purchases and the other limits ammunition magazines to 15 rounds. In other reports, El Paso Sheriff Terry Maketa, who takes umbrage with the legislative process and bills being developed for gun control, seems to be part of the club. Yeehaw. Many of us like to think there is a little bit of frontier left in the culture of Colorado life. Some like to think being on the frontier means having the right to
our view be left the heck alone and not bother with too many laws. But even out West — now and in decades gone by — we expect the guy behind the star to stand with the law, whether right, wrong or otherwise — it’s the law. That’s why we appreciated the comments of Arapahoe County Sheriff Grayson Robinson, who broke his silence on the thorny gun debate and voiced some choice words worth repeating in full. “For a public safety professional to suggest they can determine the constitutional-

ity of an issue and establish public policy based on that ill-conceived notion, would be tantamount to a police officer arresting an individual, determining guilt and sentencing the individual to incarceration in the county jail,” Robinson said. “This is not how our principle-based, constitutional system, functions. We are a nation of laws.” Robinson has it right, but in trying to understand the others, we don’t have to look far. The more than 1,700-word position paper by the County Sheriffs of Colorado opposes limiting magazines — calling for the need to have enough rounds to end a threat — and opposes extending background checks and registration, stating the government “does not have the right to know who owns a firearm or for what reason when used for lawful and peaceful
purposes.” Further the paper strongly states it is not the appropriate time to introduce gun control legislation because decisions likely will be made on “emotion rather than reason” following the recent shootings in Aurora and Sandy Hook. It suggests that gun control bills be tabled for “at least a year to encourage rational deliberations before any decisions are made.” Given these perspectives, it is easy to see why some sheriffs are riled with the actions at the Statehouse. So we commend all cool-headed sheriffs who know their roles through thick and thin, and perhaps understand that the debate involves tough questions the citizenry and its lawmakers must face involving the constitutional right to bear arms and pressing concerns about gun violence.

for joint. The personal exemptions and itemized deductions start to phase-out on income over $250,000 for single filers and $300,000 for married taxpayers. There is also now an additional tax on investment proceeds. The Net Investment Income Tax (NII), also known as the Unearned Income Medicare Contribution Tax, became effective this January. This was passed as part of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010. The 3.8 percent surtax on investment income will be assessed at $200,000 for single filers and $250,000 for married couples filing jointly. Rental income, annuity payments and capital gains may be included in the type of income taxed at the new rate. The most significant changes were on joint incomes over $450,000 where the highest bracket of 39.6% was reinstated as well as long-term capital gains and qualified dividends rates increasing to 20 percent. For this group of taxpayers, the above-mentioned phase-out rules could add another 2 percent to their taxes in addition to the added payroll and investment tax. This will be a crucial year for tax planning for anyone with executive base pay, two-earner incomes, college expenses and retirement plans. One advantage is we already know what the tax brackets and calculations will be for 2013 and 2014. Therefore, it may be prudent to adjust your financial plan and business strategies now Kummer continues on Page 9

Trying my hand at barter system “Do you believe in bartering?” That was the question I received recently from a loyal reader in the community. First she asked me if I believed in the barter system, and if my answer was yes, the second question she asked was around my willingness to barter with her for our respective services. I found the offer intriguing, as the services she offered could really help me professionally. And based on the status of her personal and professional life, she could probably benefit from some business and life coaching. Other than helping some friends and associates out from time to time, or volunteering to do some coaching or a keynote speech for a not-forprofit organization, school, or association, I never really considered the concept of bartering before. Before going down the rationalization exercise, I had to make sure it was in alignment with my belief system. It was. So I decided to analyze the opportunity and I started with my own question, “Is there truly mutual value and benefit in trading the services we both offer?” After consideration, my answer was yes. Next question, “Would I have the time to apply to make sure I could live up to my end of the bargain?” Again the answer was yes. The last question was more about doing my due diligence to make certain that the person I was going to swap services with was legitimate and would also complete the deal. The answer was also yes. The more I thought about it and socialized the idea with some friends and business mentors, the more I became comfortable with the idea and my willingness to engage grew stronger. I also found out that the barter system is alive and well, and quite possibly thriving in the current economic climate. Again, I have had inquiries and requests

to donate my time and services, and if at all possible I will absolutely do that every time that I can. But the barter concept is something I am going to test a little further. There are certain products and services that I can use or benefit from right now, and I know the companies or people who can offer them to me could probably benefit from or enjoy some business or strategic planning, coaching, mentoring, training, or a keynote speech. I know, I know, cash is king and we live in a society where paying for products and services is the norm. I am not saying that we should move to a complete barter system, not even close. I am just going to explore this a little more, test the waters a little bit and see if mutual value can actually be gained through the barter process. I would love to hear your thoughts on the barter system. Especially if you find yourself in need of any of the services I can provide and want to discuss how we might bring value to each other.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR Don’t rush into buying Easter pet
Many young children beg for a furry bunny of their own at Easter after seeing all of the cute rabbits on TV. Unfortunately many people do not realize how much work goes into caring for a rabbit, duck or chicken. Rabbits can live eight to 12 years. They do not make a good match for young children because they are very mellow. A child will of course want to hold their new pet, but rabbits become stressed when held and may try to get away which could result in an injury to the rabbit. Rabbits cannot live outside in a hutch. The Colorado weather is not conducive, they are very isolating, and there are many predators. If you do keep a rabbit inside, the whole house needs to be rabbit-proofed.
Every year after Easter hundreds of unwanted rabbits are taken to shelters or dumped in the wild. If you do this after your child fails at taking care of their rabbit, you are showing them that it is OK to dump your responsibilities on someone else. Speaking as a bunny mommy myself, rabbits are wonderful companions if you live in a calm house that has been rabbitproofed. They deserve just as much care as a dog. Please do not buy baby rabbits from stores when there are thousands of animals in shelters that need your love. If you are interested in adopting a rabbit you can visit the Colorado House Rabbit Society at www.coloradohrs.com. Lauren Winn-Dalmer Centennial

Garden: Food has been given to charities Garden continues from Page 1
This year, all the Hay garden plots available for members of the community have been assigned except three raised plots. Anyone interested is gardening one of the raised plots should apply by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. The March 17 work was well-organized. Volunteers used rakes and other equipment to smooth out the plots as other volunteers filled wheelbarrows with compost to place at each plot. When the compost was in place, volunteers moved in with rakes and shovels to smooth out the layer of compost and mix it into the dirt in the plot. At some plots, a volunteer used a rototiller to turn the soil and mix it with the compost.
One of the volunteers was Elmer Kenney. The 7-year-old Hay student used a child-size rake to smooth out the dirt and mix it with the compost on his family’s garden plot. “We had a garden here last year and raised some good vegetables,” the boy said. “I am working on this plot because I want to grow lots of watermelons, cucumbers and corn. We also will raise some tomatoes we can use in spaghetti. We get a lot of good vegetables from the garden so have too much for us to use, so we give it to the poor people so they will have good, fresh vegetables to eat.” Fahnestock said last year’s gardens were very successful. “Every Hay student took part in planting and tending one of the school’s garden plots,” she said.
“When vegetables began to ripen, the children got to eat snacks made from items from the gardens.” The community gardens were also successful. Fahnestock said the gardeners grew a variety of produce and much of the harvest was used by the gardeners. “However, many gardeners harvest more produce than they could use so they donated the extra produce to local food banks and organizations like Well Fed Colorado and Cafe 180. About 300 pounds of produce was donated last year.” She said a group of gardeners pooled produce from their harvests and used the vegetables to make a large pot of soup that was donated to the House of Hope Family Resource Center.

THINGS TO DO
Clerk: Crane to serve out term after she was elected as commissioner in November. An anonymous email sent to the commissioners on Jan. 27 painted a questionable picture of Crane, pointing to previous troubles while serving as operations manager for the Denver Election Commission in 2006, and what was called a “cozy relationship” with a voter check-in software company. A county-appointed ethics committee cleared Crane of all allegations on Feb. 14. He fills the remainder of Doty’s term as clerk and recorder, which expires Jan. 15, 2015.

Fighting Foreclosure & Promoting Hope intricacies of the short sale and because the banks really do not want homeowners to walk away, the team discovered the power of negotiation and the value of consistency in tearing down red tape. Thanks to their patience, persistence and a lot of hard work, Your Hope Team now has access to a bounty of valuable knowledge and resources to help those facing foreclosure fight it with discretion and dignity.
Since 2008, 3.7 million Americans have lost their homes to foreclosure according to a recent report by Corelogic. Today, there are 1.4 million homes currently in the foreclosure process. No matter the reason for falling behind, facing foreclosure is scary. Families in danger of losing their homes can be overwhelmed by stress and fear. They don’t know what their options are or where to turn for help. That is where Moe comes in.
It is imperative that homeowners in distressed situations have an agent who can deal with the complexities of a short sale. Your Hope Team can expedite this process, with an immediate plan of action that can bring relief and hope when it is needed most.
Motenia Rose-Deaver, “Moe” is a real estate agent in Jeffco and a top local producer. When the market took a devastating dive in 2007, she saw the desperation of the community. Homeowners, caught off guard, were facing a horrible crisis and had no idea where to find a path to relief.
The goal of Your Hope Team is to offer the emotional support to give homeowners a sense of being back in control of their lives, their homes and their dignity. These are hard times and they are determined to try to share their knowledge, experience and strength.
Moe decided to devote her time and talent to helping these homeowners in need. Adding to her 20+ years of experience in real estate, Moe became a Certified Distressed Property Expert in 2008 and has been pulling off the seemingly impossible since then.
“The only thing stronger than fear is HOPE!!”
Are you one of the following...
In January 2008, Moe formed a group called, “Your Hope Team” to reach out to the Jefferson County community and Denver Metro area. Moe and her team immersed themselves in the foreclosure process, determined to learn the inner workings. Along the way, they became well versed in the

May you never be the same again. The big white bunny greets visitors with a basket of candy at last year’s Englewood Great Egg Hunt. The hunt will be held this year on March 23. File photo
Egg-hunting time hits Englewood Gathering for kids set for Miller Field By Tom Munds
firstname.lastname@example.org Once again, a big, white bunny will draw a lot of attention and will be giving out hugs as families gather for Englewood’s annual Great Egg Hunt March 23 at Miller Field, 3600 S. Elati St. Gates open at 9:30 a.m. and the signal to start gathering goodies sounds at 10. The event is for children ages 1 through 8. The cost is $1 per child and all the young hunters are asked to bring a container for the loot they collect. Early arrivals will gather behind the tape while volunteers complete the task of littering the grass with an abundance of plastic eggs, goodies and toys. The crowd is usually large so, to give all the children the opportunity to collect goodies, the hunting grounds are clearly marked off into four areas
for varying age groups. There are separate areas for 1- and 2-year-olds, 3- and 4-year-olds, 5- and 6-year-olds and 7- and 8-year-olds. Parents are not allowed to help the older children but can give a hand to the toddlers and very young children, assisting them as the kids collect the goodies. Often parents have to move quickly in order to keep the little ones behind the tape until the horn sounds. The crowd grows but remains behind the yellow tape until the 10 a.m. air horn blast signals the start of the event. The kids push past the tape and the rush is on as children race here and there to scoop up candy, toys, prizes and brightly colored plastic eggs spread around on the grass. Each plastic egg contains goodies and, somewhere on the field, there are a few special plastic eggs in each age group’s hunting grounds. The children who find the special eggs can redeem them for baskets filled with toys and goodies. The mad scramble doesn’t last long. Usually within 10 minutes or
less, each area has been picked clean right down to the blades of grass. Englewood resident Lindsey Porter said she remembers the egg hunt when she was a kid and now he is looking forward to bringing her two boys to the event. “When I was little, our whole neighborhood used to get together and come down for the egg hunt,” he said. “We just recently moved back to Englewood in January and I got excited when I read the egg hunt announcement at the recreation center. My husband and I talked to three of our neighbors and we are all going to event and then all going out to lunch. I think it’ll be a lot of fun.” She said the egg hunt is another of the small-town events Englewood holds that help make it a stronger community. The Great Egg Hunt needs Mother Nature’s cooperation to be a success but, in case the weather is bad, the decision will be made late Friday or early Saturday on whether or not to move the event to April 3. To check on the status, call 303-762-2598.

By Sonya Ellingboe
sellingboe@ourcolorado news.com “Pitmen Painters” by Lee Hall, who wrote “Billy Elliott” about the same area and period in England — the area where he grew up — offers a striking theater experience as we consider the role of art in the lives of people with no previous exposure to it. Are there any rules about who should create art and how to understand and enjoy it? This play is based on a true story and a book published about the Ashington Painters. The characters, who speak in a distinctive dialect particular to the Northumberland region where it takes place, are wonderfully varied individuals. It’s 1934 and 112 million men are working in the pits on 10hour shifts. The Worker’s Educational Association gave miners an opportunity to advance their learning, including men in the town of Ashington. When Robert Lyon appears to teach them art appreciation, he begins talking about traveling in Italy with famous British sculptor Henry Moore — his students had never heard of him. His further attempts to show slides and talk about famous painters such as Michelangelo fall flat. They simply don’t speak the same language. What the men want to do, they tell him, is look at a painting and understand what it means. Lyons (Peter David Giffen) decides that the key will be for them to paint themselves — no matter how well — and talk about their own work. Paintings are to relate to their mine work.
Robert (Peter Giffin) — one of the miners — works on a painting. The play is based on true events. Oliver, sensitively portrayed by Mark Collins, was left to raise his siblings and started work in the pits at age 10. He is the most prolific painter and eventually must decide if that’s to be his future. George (Tim Fishbaugh) tries to keep this unruly bunch in line with WEA rules. Jimmy (Sam Gilstrap) likes pretty pictures and is the class clown, while Brandon Palmer plays two parts: a young lad
who hasn’t begun to labor in the mines and artist Ben. Fine actor Paul Borillo is Harry, a “dental technician” who can’t work in the mines because he was gassed in World War I. He is a socialist and fond of spouting Marxisms. They are prolific enough painters that museum exhibits follow and wealthy art collector Mrs. Sutherland (Jan Cleveland) enters their lives, bringing another world with her.
Projections and actual canvases show images of their works, which include people in town street scenes, miners at work, Bedlington terriers, landscapes and more. One can still visit a museum that displays a collection of their works. “We paint tiny moments of life passing us by — lost if someone doesn’t get it down,” Oliver observes. Time passes, Lyon does a dissertation about his work with the pitmen and gets a job at Edinburgh University, the men continue to meet and paint — and talk and talk. (This script is especially wonderful.) Discussions of why does art matter and how do we express feelings about it are woven through the play and send one home with ideas to ponder. By the 1940s, the men are dreaming of starting an Ashington University and are still meeting in the hall they call the Hut. A miner’s hymn plays near the end, concluding a nicely done background sound design by Paige Larson and Jonathan Scott McKean. He also handled the projection and lighting design, which are an integral part of the production. His wife Liz ScottMcKean was set painter for the set designed by director Rick Bernstein. This play is being done around the nation now and had a New York stand, but I’d expect it to gain steam as more people become aware of its quality. Try to see it here.
One of the best parties I have attended lately took place March 13 inside the $5 million refurbished meeting spaces inside The Westin Downtown Denver Hotel. The event, which showed off the new digs of the mezzanine-level Continental Ballroom, renamed the Confluence Ballroom, as well as the ballroom foyer and all breakout meeting rooms. To unveil the renovation, The Westin’s sales team partnered with Destination Services Design Team to transform the space into specialty rooms such as a Molecular Microbrew bar, a Rock ‘n’ Roll sushi station and a soothing Spa-Ception room. “A major component of the project was leveling the mezzanine-level fixed-seat Tabor Auditorium to create an additional 3,000-square-feet of flexible meeting space,” said Tom Curley, the hotel’s general manager and owner Starwood’s area managing director. “This new space, called the Platte River Room, allows the hotel to service groups more effectively by offering additional dining and meeting space options.” Yes, the spruced-up space looked lovely, but the most outstanding aspect of the party was something I’ve never seen done in catering before: a salad martini bar. When I glanced over to that food station, I thought, “Oh no, another mashed potato bar. No thanks.” But when I saw socialite and philanthropist Susan Kiely munching salad in a martini glass, I had to investigate. Rather than heavy mashed potatoes, the station offered a healthy selection of salad ingredients mixed in a martini shaker (not stirred) with your choice of salad dressing. Bravo and brilliant!
In the limelight
The 23rd annual Limelight Awards, which recognizes outstanding people and places that over the past year have embodied the true spirit of LoDo, took place Thursday in the refurbished McNichols Civic Center Building, on the corner of Colfax and Bannock. (Frankly, not my favorite space for an event because there is mostly metered parking and no valet.) But the event, despite the number of guests who were ticketed for expired meters, was a festive celebration put on by the LoDo District Inc. This year’s awards went to: Cares Award for philanthropic contributions to the neighborhood: Carol Ann and Paul Rothmann for the Downtown Denver Children’s Playground. Spotlight Award for a successful marketing campaign that brought activity to the area: Tom and Diane Coohill, owners of Coohills restaurant at 1400 Wewatta, for the Beats on the Creek concert series. Legacy Award for development projects that contribute to LoDo’s culture of historic preservation and innovation: Wazee Supper Club. Service Award for those who go above and beyond to aid LoDo District Inc: Rob Grey, LoDo District Vice Chair. New Business Award for a new neighbor who has made a notable impact: Springhill Suites Denver Downtown at Metro State.

The exclusive invite party gave media and other guests an hour to peruse the new space before opening the doors to supporters of the Ballpark Neighborhood Association. As advertised, the eatery featured an eclectic spread of bar bites from chef Jose Guerrero (from Roy’s Cherry Creek, Mao and Pizza Republica), Colorado-centric cocktails and microbrews and the spectacular view from the rooftop patio bar. VIEWHOUSE is a Denver corporation comprised of principals Brad Manske as managing partner and nightclub king Francois Safieddine as landlord and money man.
Wings and things
Can pigs fly? They do at Grillin’ Wings & Things at 723 S. University Blvd. (southwest corner of University and Exposition). The new fantastic wings joint (I tried them recently and can you say finger-lickin’ good?) features pig wings (lip-smacking mini pork shanks served “special grilled” style tossed in a choice of sauces), along with egg-cellent chicken wings grilled or
deep-fried. Chicken tenders and jumbo shrimp also grace the menu, along with salads and wraps. Sides include deep-fried corn on the cob, garlic parmesan fries, and beer-battered onion rings. The sauces are a standout with everything from honey hot to sweet ginger Thai to spicy garlic chili. Many of them are gluten-free. Grillin’ Wings also serves wine and beer. Fly on over and check out this place.
Gluten be gone
The Walnut Room’s two locations — Two North Broadway and 3131 Walnut St. — have expanded their gluten-free offerings. In addition to gluten-free pizza, the restaurants have added glutenfree bread for sandwiches and a flourless torte. The Walnut Room restaurants have also expanded their gluten-free beverages. “We are proud to offer our glutensensitive customers more choices to make their dining experience more varied,” said Leslie Odell, director of operations.

Bid adieu to The Big Easy Creole Kitchen, at 250 Steele St., which closed this month after less than six months in business. The good-food restaurant owned by George Gastl, a native of Denver who lived in New Orleans and cooked at the Palace Cafe, served New Orleans favorites including turtle soup, crawfish etouffee, gumbo, blackened shrimp and sweetbreads. No word on whether Gastl plans to reopen The Big Easy Creole Kitchen elsewhere. The lower-level space has been a challenge to other restaurateurs as well. Jesse Morreale, owner of El Diablo on First and Broadway, operated Sketch in that space, but later changed the concept to Tambien with chef Sean Yontz. That restaurant eventually closed.

Denver Water Prepares for Drought Conditions and Beyond The Denver metro area must brace for one of the driest summers in a decade, the leader of the state’s largest water utility told a group of business leaders from the South Metro Denver Chamber this week. Denver Water CEO Jim Lochhead hosted about 30 of the chamber’s members and special guests at the utility’s headquarters Monday to talk about drought conditions in 2013 and what the utility is doing to prepare for the coming years. “We are facing a future of increasing uncertainty,” Lochhead told the group. “Drought, forest fires and the potential for increased demand stemming from climate change are things we have to be prepared to deal with as they will significantly challenge water supply managers across the West. In addition, aging infrastructure, consumer risk tolerance, economic uncertainties, growth and a changing regulatory environment are challenges for the future. “ The luncheon, which was co-sponsored by the Chamber’s Energy and Sustainable Infrastructure Council, brought business leaders from across the region to meet and talk with Lochhead about what the challenges are and why we’re facing them. Lochhead warned that despite recent snow events, the region is facing the driest summer conditions since early 2000. And that unless there are drastic climate shifts that bring more water, the utility will be forced to impose restrictions on customers that would include twice-a-week watering restrictions, asking restaurants to serve water by request only and working with businesses like car washes to limit consumption. “Even though we’ve seen some great snow in the metro area, our water supply comes from the mountains, and prior to this weekend, we needed an additional 8 to 10 feet of snow in the high country to help us out of the drought,” Lochhead said. “Prior to this recent snow, our snowpack in Denver Water’s watersheds is approxi-
mately 60% percent of average. “We have learned a lot of lessons from the 2002-2004 drought,” he added. “We think that we are about as prepared as we can be.” Part of those preparations involve the heightening of the Gross Reservoir dam in Boulder County, which would double the reservoir’s storage and enable Denver Water to have more in reserves for dry seasons. The utility has been bogged down for years through the permitting process to make the expansion happen and Gov. Hickenlooper has written to President Obama to try to speed up the federal process for getting approval to heighten the dam. Also, as part of Denver Water’s conservation efforts, the utility is forming a project with 17 entities to supply more customers in the south metro area. Once approved, the partnership, called WISE, which stands for Water, Infrastructure and Supply Efficiency, will provide new supplies by combining unused water in Aurora with unused supplies from Denver. During years when Denver and Aurora don’t need the water, 15 Douglas County entities that make up the South Metro Water Supply Authority will be able to purchase the unused portion to reduce their reliance on nonrenewable groundwater sources. The partnership is still being finalized, but Denver Water expects to start capturing unused water and selling it to South Metro in the next few years, Lochhead said. “Water is such a precious resource, and this really was a terrific opportunity for influential leaders in the south metro business community to hear and understand what is in store for us in the future,” Chamber President & CEO John Brackney said. “It’s important from a community standpoint that we get the word out to all the citizens that water conservation is important.” Business leader Jeff Keener, who heads
Silver Ainomae, principal cellist of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, will perform as part of a string sextet on March 23 at Hampden Hall.

the chamber’s Energy and Sustainable Infrastructure Council, applauded Denver Water’s efforts for getting word out about upcoming conservation needs. “It’s important for Denver Water to do a good job to explain why, so people understand the restrictions,” Keener said. “For business development, I don’t think the upcoming drought restrictions will affect new construction for companies, because it sounds like Denver Water has done a good job to prepare for those eventualities. “I really have to take my hat off to everything Denver Water has done to serve its customers and the region as a whole in their conservation efforts and drought preparations,” Keener continued. The South Metro Chamber Energy & Sustainable Infrastructure Group’s mission is to: 1) educate, inform, and promote the open exchange of ideas; 2) collaborate & grow business relationships; and 3) to promote prosperity through policy - all through the context of technology, renewable and traditional energy sources.

track season off and running Coach says team has good start in season’s first meet
‘The soccer players compete in individual events as well as joining forces
by tom Munds
email@example.com Jay Graves, Englewood track team head coach, said that although weather severely limited outside practice time, the Pirates still did fairly well in their first competition of the year on March 16 at the Windsor Invitational Track Meet. “Our boys turned in some good performances on the track and in field events,” the coach said. “Our girls roster was small because we have several soccer players who join us when they can but the team still did pretty well.” There was little time to think about Windsor because the Pirates took part in the Colorado 7 league relays March 19. There are practices through March 22 and then all official activities, including practices, are put on hold while the students are on spring break. Practices and classes resume April 1 as the team begins preparation to host 13 teams attending the annual Windjammer Invitational on April 6. Graves said the boys team this year is a combination of veterans and newcomers. Returning letter winners Tucker Horan and Chad Glover are expected to help give the Pirates
as members of the sprint relay teams.’ Coach Jay Graves
Tayler Searcy heads down the track as she practices starts out of the blocks. This is the senior’s first season on the track team. strong representation in distance competitions. The team should be strengthened with Damasjae Currington throwing the discus and the shot put and newcomers like Nick Diersagal in the triple jump and long jump. Horan said he is looking forward to his senior year with the track team. “My goal is to get my time for the 800-meter run under two minutes,” the senior said. “The 800 is a sprint and a dis-
tance event at the same time. I’m not a sprinter but I do have pretty good speed so I go out fast for the first 400, keep up a good pace while making sure I have enough left for a sprint to the finish line.” He said he also likes to be part of the 4 X 400 relay team. He said he likes working with the teammates and the challenge not only of running a leg of the race but of all the timing and coordination necessary to make a clean baton pass.
Graves said the girls team is pretty good with a returning group of sprinters, the skills of Jolie Baly in the discus and shot put events. “Again this year, several soccer players who are sprinters will join the track team when the schedule allows,” the coach said. “The soccer players compete in individual events as well as joining forces as members of the sprint relay teams.” Lindsey McNorton played soccer and ran with the track team
last year. This year, she is just running track. “I really love playing soccer but I can’t do that this year, because I dislocated my shoulder too many times in volleyball and can’t play a contact sport and, with me, soccer is a contact sport,” she said. “The individual events are fun but I particularly like the 4 X 100 relay or the medley relay.” She said she like relays because there is less pressure on the individual runners. But, at the same time, there is the special bond created by developing the strong teamwork needed to make smooth baton handoffs. “My favorite individual event is the 100-meter dash,” McNorton said. “I am working to build the stamina I need to go full speed for the entire race. My season goal is to cut at least two more seconds off my 100 time. It’s a challenge but I think I can do it.”

Small roster hampers swim team Englewood has 15 boys, including athletes new to sport By tom Munds
Tmunds@ourcoloradonews.com The Englewood High School boys swim team includes talented swimmers, but the team faces the challenge of swimming meets with only 15 athletes on the roster. “We had about 20 boys sign up for our
team,” Coach Elizabeth Sedalnick said during the March 13 practice. “Unfortunately, we are down to about 15 who are regularly at practices and meets. Individually, some of the boys have done well in the first two meets of the season, but the lack of numbers makes it very difficult to score the points needed to win a meet.” Of course, the Pirates are road warriors all season, since there is no longer a pool at the high school. The team traveled to Hinkley High School in Aurora on March 19. They return from spring break on April 1 and have two weeks to get ready for the next meet on April 17 at George Washington
Englewood High School Assistant Coach Oscar Barrera, left, shows swimmer Javier Baylon the proper hand position to use for the backstroke. The coaches are concentrating practice time on stroke technique improvement.
‘I like swimming. I like being on the team so I just couldn’t stay away.’ Javier Baylon High School. Swim meets begin at either 4 or 4:15 p.m. This is Sedalnick’s first season as head coach, and she thinks the team’s strength is the dedication of the swimmers on the roster. “We do have a few guys back from last season, but we also have eight boys who are involved for the first time in any level of competitive swimming,” the coach said. “All are dedicated and work hard even though a couple of the newcomers didn’t even know how to swim.” Since the Englewood High School pool was demolished as part of the creation of a seventh- through 12th-grade campus on the school site, swim teams have practiced at the Englewood Recreation Center. The center has provided three swimming lanes for 90 minutes a day for Pirate team practice. While a few team members are accomplished swimmers, many are learning the fundamentals of the sport. So, throughout the practice, the two coaches are on the edge of the pool, showing the athletes the proper techniques for each of the strokes. One newcomer, Kaleb Moseley, has overcome the steep learning curve to post the team’s fastest time this season in the 50-meter freestyle event, and he’s working on the strokes to begin competing in the 100-meter individual medley. “I know how to swim but I have never
done any competitive swimming,” the freshman said. “Coach Sedalnick talked about the sport to me and I decided to come out for the team.” He said his favorite stroke is the butterfly. “The butterfly is a challenge because you have to coordinate the arm sweep and the kicks with your breathing,” he said. “It took practice but, now that I know the techniques, I think it is a fun stroke to swim.” He said the coach wants him to swim the individual medley. He said that means he has to work on improving his times in all four strokes, butterfly, backstroke, breaststroke and freestyle. He said his goal is steady improvement. He said he wants to swim state qualifying time in the 50 freestyle. He said that will be a challenge because it is a short race and his current time is 31 seconds, and he needs to improve to about 23 seconds to achieve his goal. Teammate Javier Baylon is one of the team’s returning lettermen. “I like swimming, I like being on the team so I just couldn’t stay away,” the sophomore said. “I ran cross country and I played basketball so I was in pretty good shape. But it still takes a lot of work to establish the stamina to be competitive in swimming.”

PHOTOS BY DEBORAH GRIGSBY The Rocky Mountain African Violet Show and Sale was in full bloom March 16 and 17 at Tagawa Gardens in Arapahoe County. Hundreds of entries from across the region were on display, competing for top honors. Entries were judged by color, species, size and artistic interpretation. Introduced to the United States by a New York florist in 1894, African violets have earned a reputable position in American homes, with wholesale sales in 2003 exceeding $20 million. The two-day show attracted a steady stream of enthusiasts and is hosted by the Rocky Mountain African Violet Council, a nonprofit organization based in Denver that is dedicated to African violets and other gesneriads. Nelly Levine’s Streptocarpus Heartland’s White Gold racked up several awards, placing it prominently in the winner’s circle at this year’s Rocky Mountain African Violet Show and Sale. The two-day event was held March 16 and 17 at Tagawa Gardens in Arapahoe County. Miniature landscapes give some African violets a new sense of perspective, making them appear much larger to the eye than they actually are. This exhibit, created by Ruthann Buckhalter, was one of several container garden entries at this year’s Rocky Mountain African Violet Show and Sale.
